Subject: Jack Benny and Groucho Marx - Great!
An excellent, and I mean excellent, Jack Benny show with special guest star Groucho Marx and a take-off on "You Bet Your Life."

The expressions on Jack's face as he battles his two biggest vices - greed and vanity - are worth far more than $3000.

As usual, Rochester gets the best lines.

Subject: Minutes
25 minutes of actual show (there's a moment of product mentioning still intact in this 26 minute copy).

25 minutes...As was common at the time.

Some shows these days barely make it to 21 minutes. No wonder there are so many disillusioned youths going around crushing people with sand, lacerating people with wind, and impaling people inside of giant puppets.

On a more positive note, Rochester is the best thing ever.
